9 years ago, I was 10 days past my due date, wondering if my third baby was ever going to be ready to make his entrance into this world. On April 28th, 2002 at around noon, he did. Joshua was born at home with a team of midwives assisting me. My sister, my Mom and my husband were in the room to welcome him. My Dad was downstairs and the first to hold him once he was swaddled and ready to be introduced to his Grandpa.
Today, the kids and I are getting ready for tomorrow night’s big party. We spent the morning putting together goody bags and whipping up Dirt Cakes. We had so much fun making them and the children are really hoping they fool some of the guests into thinking they really are being given potted plants instead of a tasty birthday dessert!
